Notes

I Know You Rider / @ 2:54
Row Jimmy skips @ 8:42>8:43
Master Reel Flip in Let It Grow
Short Cut at end of Dark Star
Reel change in Wharf Rat (d3t04) @ 6:36

Bob Clevenger got this show from Diana Hamilton and retracked it even more so that set 1 all goes on disc 1 if you use an 80 minute CDR.

He also smoothed out the reel change mentioned above so that there is no loud POP!

Good.

I was just a sophomore in high school and this show was my first (of 25) Dead shows. I didn't have a DL and so my mother drove me from our home in St. Petersburg over to Tampa, dropped me off, and came back to get me at midnight. Lots of drugs in the seats and planty of Tampa PD officers taking people out. Not me, I was scared of that stuff.

Anyway, a great show and a great memory. I'm glad that after all these years I can listen to it again and remember where I was and what I was seeing on this date, a long time ago...

In a perfect world both the 18th & 19th, in their completion, would have been released as Dick's Picks 1 and I wouldn't have waited so long for this fantastic show. The great thing about this soundboard is that it's still available for download (but for how long?) and the sound is so clear and crisp! Listen closely to Dark Star, with headphones perhaps, as Bobby subtley noodles around with Mind Left Body from the beginning until around the 8 min. mark when it sounds like he might bring everyone in. But Phil seems to want Other One, until Jerry of course steers the ship into the first verse. However, everything melts after that into feedback drenched space heaven, so MLB or O1 is coming next, right? No, it's Eyes! I love '73!

Subject: A jazz fused monumental second set...
Which certainly blows away the following night immortalized by Dick in his first pick.

But I'd go with the superior Eaton sourced Miller remaster, inspite of Clevengers re-tracking.

This is a phenomenal jazzy performance and certainly among the very best of '73.
